'To All the Boys I've Loved Before' Sequel- Casting Updates, Release Date, Production Schedule & More

You guys! The To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before sequel news is starting to trickle in, finally! We know you’re just as excited to see Lara Jean back on the small screen, so allow us to cut to the chase — see what’s up below.

Here’s what’s happened (so far):

Release date: February 12, 2020! I’ve already moved my Galentine’s Day plans up to set up a viewing party of this highly anticipated sequel to our Netflix fave. With the release day finally being released (and really, right around the corner) it’s time to start getting our hopes up for a trailer!

Casting updates — Who’s joining, leaving, and returning?

Who’s joining: Earlier this month, it was announced that Peter Kovinsky’s best friend will be played by Ross Butler of Riverdale and 13 Reasons Why.

Who’s leaving: In a casting switcheroo, Rent and Grease: Live actor Jordan Fisher will be taking over as John Ambrose. Contrary to fan speculation that Ambrose would be reprised by Jordan Burtchett — who played the role in that unforgettable TATBILB post-credits scene — the role ultimately went to Fisher, as confirmed in March.

Who’s returning: The rest of the original cast is confirmed to come back for the sequel — and according to several of the cast members’ Instagram activity, it’s a huge love fest.

Name of the sequel — What’s it gonna be?

The official title for this movie, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, is a mash-up of the first two novels in Han’s Lara Jean trilogy, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You

Yes, the band is back together!

Many of the original cast members have been confirmed to reprise their roles, including all of the Covey girls and Peter Kavinsky. Gen will be around to stir the pot a bit more and cause a bit more drama between Lara and Peter. The love triangle is about to shift from Peter, Josh, and Lara to Peter, another love letter subject, and Lara but Josh Sanderson will still be around for our girl.

Potential for a third film

Han’s series is a trilogy: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, P.S. I Still Love You, and Always and Forever, Lara Jean, and we’ve been speculating for a while whether or not we would see Always and Forever in our Netflix queues. Well, good news, the third installment in this franchise has been confirmed by Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky themselves! Lana Condor and Noah Centenio, the actors behind bringing our OTP to life, took to Instagram to confirm that not only is the third movie coming, they’ve been filming it for months! And according to the actors, the film already has a name attached to it, To All the Boys: Always and Forever, Lara Jean.
